Papa’s club, planting marigolds, dinner in NYC

Ella had a very busy day and night on Saturday.  We started the day at papa’s club which has a much quieter kiddie pool and big pool.  Ella had fun in both pools.  She also got grandma to get totally wet in the big pool!  After the pool, Ella took a nap and when she woke up, she planted marigolds with grandma.  Ella and I bought them at a plant store earlier in the day.  After the marigold planting, we all took showers and Ella took a bath and we went into to NY to meet AJ, Uncle Michael, Papa and Uncle Jesse who just arrived from LA.  It was a really sweet night, a great dinner and we finished the evening at AJ and Uncle Michael’s apartment to spend a little time with Normyn who wore an outfit that Ella picked out for her last year for Halloween.  Aunt Heather is arriving tonight and Mommy is coming on Wednesday.  HURRY UP AND GET HERE MOMMY!  WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH.
